The Veil: Visible & Invisible Spaces
Exhibition Dates: November 1 – 27, 2011
Curated by Jennifer Heath
Opening Reception: Tuesday, November 1, 7-9PM
Invited international visual artists – including videographers, filmmakers and new media artists, as well as painters, sculptors, performance and installation artists – investigate and re-vision the veil. This show puts veils and veiling into context in order to engage received wisdom about the veil – particularly current clichés and stereotypes about Islamic practices – and to reflect on the great ubiquity, importance and profundity of the veil throughout human history and imagination. Participating artists are: Sama Alshaibi, Tulu Bayar, Ana Baer Carillo, Tiffany Besonen, Elizabeth Bisbing, Christine Breslin, Jo-Ann Brody, Fatma Charfi, Juliet Davis, Rebecca DiDomenico, Yassi Golshani, Ana Maria Hernando, Tsehai Johnson, Tania Kamal-Eldin, Deb King, Shakuntala Kulkarni, Anita Kunz, Judith Selby Lang, Victoria May, Aphrodite Desiree Navab, Brenda Oelbaum, Sara Rahbar, Larissa Sansour, Mary Tuma, Kim Turos, Kerry Vander Meer, Eve Whitaker, Sherry Wiggins, Women Living Under Muslim Laws, International Solidarity Network, and Helen Zughaib.
